Green R&D Innovation & Testing Facility at Canada’s largest Oval Speedway – Canadian Motor Speedway & McMaster University Teaming UP
the idea girl says
I was reading the information boards at the Grand Opening for the Canadian Motor Speedway and jotted down some notes and now I am blogging them on 15 July 2015. (I attended it in June, 2015)
So they have this innovation, testing facility that McMaster and Niagara College will have their professional students doing various things. Developing new technology for the racing industry than testing the products on the track. Sounds really exciting and cool! Kudo’s were going GREEN in Fort Erie!
it’s going to be on Canada’s largest speedway oval , and Canada’s largest stadium (65,000 to 100,000 seat expansion plans)
its all on 823 acres according to my interview with Erik their Media consultant! 🙂
Canadian Motor Speedway has been a regular contributor over the years towards the Faculty of Engineering’s experiential learning initiative. Our donations have been used directly by students to help create innovations like hybrid and solar racing cars and support student activities in the way of engineering and green auto innovation programs. Our continued funding will support the new ExCEL building which is currently being designed by and for McMaster’s Engineering Centre for Experiential Learning.
Dr. David Wilkinson, Dean of Engineering, McMaster Provost & VP Academic:
“A speedway of this nature attracts some of the top automotive developers and manufacturers in the world. Many automotive innovations have been developed first in high-performance vehicles and then adapted for application to production.
